Florence is an amazing city. Of course the art collection is the main draw, but the city itself is also wonderful. The view from Piazzale Michelangelo of the city and Arno river is worth the hike. Sunset gives the whole city a golden glow. The view from the top of Duomo is worth all those stairs. The city was understandably touristy, but not oppressively so. The food was wonderful, of course, though I never got around to trying the tripe sandwiches. David was one of those things that really held up. This is an image that has been with all of us since childhood, yet seeing the sculpture in person still blew my mind. Good to know I’m not quite a cynical old codger yet.
